What Happened? In an MTV special, Ja Rule was interviewed by Louis Farrakhan about his beef with 50 Cent. In the interview, Ja recalled the first time he had a brawl with 50 in Atlanta. According to Ja, he confronted 50 and started to go into detail about how he felt about him.

“I let him know I wasn't feeling it, his whole style," said Ja. "So he punched me, he snuffed me, and—boom!—I caught him back. Then the fight broke out.” Ja claimed the incident lead to their beef becoming official. “Once that ensued, that's when the real beef started. Because now it's a physical thing."
